i dared to dream

i dared to dream that things would be good.
that we would all get long, (if we only
could).
i dared to dream that we could actually
be friends,
but a one sided dream
does not have a happy end.

how i wish things were the way
i dreamed them to be.
all of us together,
as a family.
instead of this endless
hostility.

i am afraid to try,
as you still live in
the past.
because every time we
do,
it never seems to last.

so the years go by,
the children grow.
but some adults do not,
as we sadly know.
 
 
if only interpersonal life were as lush as this image and as filled with possibilities

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
